Aurora permit issued just minutes ago!

Just minutes ago we received our occupancy permit from City of Aurora Mayor, Tom Weisner and we will be OPEN FOR BUSINESS TOMORROW!

Instead of holding a rally* at city hall tomorrow night, we invite our supporters to attend a press conference at our Aurora health center to celebrate our first day of business! Here are the details -

What: Press Conference
Where: Aurora Planned Parenthood Health Center, 3051 E. New York Street, Aurora, IL
When: Tuesday, October 2, at 10 am

*We encourage anyone who is interested to attend the Aurora city council meeting on their own to monitor the discussion, but we will not be rallying outside city hall.

While it's a travesty that the opening of our health center became such a politicized issue, we never could have won this battle without the incredible support of pro-choice residents in Aurora, Naperville, and other local communities, as well as our supporters throughout the state and the nation. Thank you to every person that stood up for us at city council, that rallied at City Hall, that gave a donation, that signed a petition, and that supported us in so many ways during this fight.

Thank you for all you've done!
